ROOKWOOD POTTERY, ARTS & CRAFTS DESIGN, VERY RARE GLAZE - For Sale
ROOKWOOD POTTERY, ARTS & CRAFTS DESIGN, VERY RARE GLAZE
For sale is a wonderful Arts & Crafts Design Vase made by The Rookwood Pottery Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Vase is a Tapered Ovoid Shape. The Vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 6 7/8" tall and is approximately 3 1/2" in diameter at it widest point. The top opening is 2 1/4" in diameter outside measurement and has a 2" inside diameter opening.
The Vase displays a wonderful Arts and Crafts design of vertical paneled leaves. These are nestled inside of an incised pointed paneled border. There is a stylized four Petal Flower at the top of each pair of these leaves. The design repeats itself three times. The Vase has one of the Rarest Rookwood Pottery Glazes I have ever come across. I would described this as a Blue Crystalline on Mat Tan and Brown glaze. There is definitely 2 different brown tone glazes here. The crystals are applied evenly around the vase. When held to the light, these crystals shows their deep rich blue color. The Vase has a very carved organic look to it.
The piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. Looking inside the Vase it shows minimal use. The piece is signed with Rookwood's Impressed Reverse "RP" and Sunburst Logo along with the Roman Numerals "XXIV" for the year of manufacture, 1924. There is also the mold number "2438" impressed under the date. The bottom shows just how thick this glaze really is.
This would make an outstanding addition to any Art Pottery Collection and would look just great on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts Style Bookcase. Those of you whom collect rare Art Pottery Glazed Vessels do not want to let this one slip by!!
